** Thread MOVED to Fastlane Insiders Forum **This thread will highlight my progress towards building a search tool for farmers. I'll be posting weekly updates as an overview of the progress I've made for the week. I'll also post occasional updates about other things that happen along the way.
My website, AgServiceFinder.com, is a search tool that helps farmers connect with agricultural service providers, such as livestock transporters, custom harvesters, etc. I started the website in June 2019. I currently have around 1,100 businesses that I manually listed on the site (as of 11/25/2019). I add businesses by hand to populate listings. People can also add their business to the site for free, or choose a paid listing plan that allows them special features, such as a video section, events creation, Google Maps integration, etc. I've had one business purchase a paid plan for 30 days (non-recurring) and had two businesses add themselves for free. I currently have a remaining budget of roughly $100.
Feel free to make suggestions, share ideas, ask me a question, or give your 2 cents. I'm currently struggling with getting more farmers to use the site. I'd also like to note that I'm a college student taking 18 credits and have other commitments, so some weeks/days I may have limited time. Regardless, I devote a lot of time to working on this project and sacrifice most of my free time to work on this. I hope this thread will help others by capturing my progress for others to learn from; feel free to ask me any questions, even unrelated to the site (such as my productivity tricks or sleep habits).
